A Father's Vigil

Bookmark and Share
  Sleep well, my Son
Through the long day.
Fear not the bright light'
I stand guard by your side.
They came today'.
Loved ones and friends,
Crying, 'Here lies one
Who was noble and brave
Who caused no grief'
And left me weeping at your grave.

Sleep well, my Son
Through the dark night
Fear not the fading light'
I stand vigil by your side.
They came today '
The creatures of the night,
I cried, ' Here lies one
Who is innocent and alone
Who caused no pain'.
And they left me to grieve at your tombstone.

Sleep well, my Son
For, when you wake
Fear not the strange light'.
I shall hasten to your side.
We will walk together
Through the eternal light.
Angels will cry,' Come hither,
We heard your cries.
Suffer no more'.'
And we will walk together through the gates of paradise.
